Maisie Williams Says The New Mutants Ten Month Delay Is A Good Thing

Published

on

Recently we learned that Fox has pushed back the April 2018 release of their X-Men horror movie The New Mutants by a whopping 10 months.

The film from director Josh Boone (The Fault in our Stars) will now be released in February of 2019 and while that may give some people cause for alarm, star Maisie Williams (“Game of Thrones”) feels that the delayed release is a good thing.

“Well, it was always a really quick turn around,” Williams told Collider in a recent interview. “And there was always battles of how they were going to manage it. We finished in September and they were going to release in April and there’s- it’s a mutant film, there’s a lot of effects.”

“There’s a lot of work that goes into the movie,” she continues. “They really make the movie after we finish shooting, so there was always kind of a bit nervous, really. I know how long this sort of thing takes on Game of Thrones and I know the work that they want to put in is- it’s a huge job. Actually, I think it’s for the better. I think it’s good that we’ve got more time. We’re not so strapped and up against it. It gives us time- it gives me time to get to know the project once its finalized.”

Fair enough, I say. These movies no matter how contained they try to be will always feature a great number of SFX and so, yes, it makes sense that taking more time on said FX and getting them right will only stand to benefit the final film.

Do you agree with Williams in that pushing the film back (almost) a full year is a good thing? Let us know below.

The New Mutants is directed by Josh Boone and stars Anya Taylor-Joy (THE WITCH), Maisie Williams (GAME OF THRONES), Charlie Heaton (STRANGER THINGS), and Alice Braga (CITY OF GOD).

The film is set to hit February 22, 2019.

Synopsis:

A diverse cadre of teens are learning to cope with their superpowers. These new mutants find themselves held in a secret facility against their will and must battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past.

Even Sarah Connor Hated TERMINATOR: GENISYS

Published

on

I think it’s safe to say there aren’t many people out there that were fans of Terminator: Genisys. The film was kind of a major mess and it looks like life on the set was as well.

That film’s new Sarah Connor, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) was recently speaking with Vanity Fair about some other crap and then the conversation swung around to the failed reboot of the Terminator series. And Clarke had some interesting things to say…

First, she told the magazine how she was “relieved” when the film bombed at the box-office so she didn’t have to sign up for further sequels. And then Clarke says she watched frequent Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor “get eaten and chewed up on Terminator. He was not the director I remembered. He didn’t have a good time. No one had a good time.”

Damn girl, tell it like it is! Got to respect the woman for not holding back and sugarcoating things under the blanket of “creative differences.” Hell, maybe Clarke will be able to do the same regarding all the drama surrounding that new Lando: A Star Wars Story movie one day.

What did you think of the film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance against Skynet, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator assassin, an unexpected turn of events creates an altered timeline. Instead of a scared waitress, Sarah is a skilled fighter and has a Terminator guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger) by her side. Faced with unlikely allies and dangerous new enemies, Reese sets out on an unexpected new mission: reset the future.

Published

Like many of you out there, Idris Elba is one of my favorite actors working today. And it is with this in mind that I’m excited by today’s news that says Elba will be tackling The Hunchback of Notre Dame for Netflix.

THR reports that Elba will not only star in the film, but he will be directing and producing the music described as a “sonic and musical experience” as well. That’s a lot of hats there, Gunslinger.

For those who might be unaware, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is an 1831 novel by Victor Hugo that follows Quasimodo, a hunchback, who falls in love with the Gypsy Esmeralda. Michael Mitnick (The Current War, The Giver) will write the modern-day retelling with Fred Berger (La La Land) and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special) producing along with Elba and Ana Garanito.
